For many Arthritis is a daily struggle. A struggle to get out of bed, a struggle to walk or even a struggle to complete simple daily tasks we come across.
Often Arthritis is associated with the older generation, however, this is not the case. In the UK over 10 million people suffer from Arthritis and we can be affected by Arthritis at any age, including children.
So what is Arthritis?
Arthritis simply means ‘inflammation of the joints’, it can be crippling and painful and often expensive due to the prescription medication being prescribed for suffers. However, there are negative side effects to using this medication and ingredients are not natural having other effects on the body meaning more medications being prescribed.
There are two types of common Arthritis;
- Osteoarthritis – This is the most common form of Arthritis in the UK, it most often develops in adults in their late 40’s, more commonly in women and people with a family history of having Arthritis. However, it can occur at any age and it is caused by the breakdown of joint cartilage.
- Rheumatoid Arthritis – This affects about 1 in 100 people in the UK, It is a chronic inflammatory type of Arthritis and it occurs when the body’s immune system targets affected joints, which lead to painful swelling. Rheumatoid Arthritis can also begin to affect the organs in the body leading to further complications.
Since the discovery of Emu oil in the mid-1800’s it has been found that Emu oil helps inflammation and provides relief for aching muscles and joints.
So why is Emu oil good for Arthritis?
Today the use of Emu oil is becoming more popular as we look for natural alternatives to aid in treating a variety of conditions and provide a natural pain relief. When massaged into the skin the Emu oil saturates all underlying tissues and enables muscle and joints to be reached becoming more effective than applying a topical gel or using medicines such as ibuprofen and paracetamol! Arthritis suffers will benefit from using Emu oil as its natural properties not only help assist with inflammation but also help aid the reduction of tension, swelling and provide relief from aching muscles and joints.
